EVENING DRESS PREVIEW - A Swingin Affair, Palm Springs



Hello Kittens! 

As promised, here is a preview of my Gala dress for the upcoming Frank Sinatra Party in Palm Springs. For the main event (dinner & a musical performances) I'm wearing a vintage pink Wiggle Dress from the 50's (I tracked it down in Seattle at a thrift store in the Fremont District).

Ms. Brande from VICTORY VINTAGE is my stylist for this event  - so these are the original photos sent to her for input.

Check out the pics and see what fabulous tips she has for my FINAL LOOK.



 
Great fit - no alterations required.


BRANDE'S TIP: Ditch the black stockings and go with a nude fishnet from SPANX.

BRANDE'S TIP: The stole will look amazing, and the small silver bag is perfect. This dress needs an OPERA LENGTH glove in white or cream. Now we need some jewelry.......
ME: Would my grandmothers costume jewelry work??

BRANDE: Perfect! Pin the brooch on your STOLE to complete the look.

That is a QUICK PREVIEW of the work going into this one outfit. So what do you think? Does it look 50's/Marilyn Monroe-esque?

Stay tuned for the Afternoon Cocktail Party Dress as well as the After Hours party outfit.

xoxo
Michelle

OMG I love this! "Wiggle Dress" - too cute! Y'all are going to have an *AMAZING* time!

I agree w/ Brande's suggestions...I'm normally not a fan of hosiery that's darker than the fabric it's touching.

I used to LOVE it (in the 80s) when my mom would wear a red dress/suit with RED sheer hosiery and red high heels. I thought she was SO glamorous! ;)
